Both about the same performance wise. Spectrum doesn't require a contract. FIOS generally has a better price accompanied by a 2 yr commitment.

Room to negotiate? Got an offer with D for 150k as SC, non-mba. 7.5k signing bonus. Base is definitely on the higher end I’d expect but other components of total comp (ESPP, 401k, FSA contribution) is a good bit less competitive than my current firm. Wondering if there is anything to push on. For context, I was poached by D. Thanks!
